It may be something as simple as a dirty lens.
try cleaning the lens.
Just direct a blow dryer into the xbox through the tray.
Or you could buy a cleanig disk, fairly cheap, about 5$
try this before touching ANYTHING

Maybe someone tried soft modding it? or
all xboxes come with 3 different dvd drives
Samsung, Philips and Thomson .
the Samsung seems to be the best drive out there as i have 2 xboxes that are 5 years old and not a problem at all

Every time I put a new game it's unreadable and doesn't work, but when I put a old xbox 360 games they work fine , for example my Red Dead redemption, which I have had for almost a year works fine , but...


well, the only thing that i can think of is that your old games work because you may have backeed them up to your HDD. For whatever reason, it is not reading any of the discs, but you can play the old games because the machine knows the correct disc is in the drive, and plays it straight form the hard drive. Note that this answer is based on the assumption you back your games up; you may need a new DVD drive.

i may be wrong on this but i think if you move one hard drive from one xbox to another you'll have to reformat the drive which will erase all your games and save data on it.

Hi,
Is the new drive the same type as the old one?
Have you changed the drive key from your old drive to your new one?

My xbox 360 only pays old games(like pgr3) and not new games(like need for speed shift)


The laser in your XBox 360 is probably going out. When lasers start to fail, the first discs that stop reading are newer, dual layer, discs. Single layer discs will still read. As the laser wears out, single layer DVDs will stop reading but CDs will continue to read. Eventually, everything will stop reading and the laser will die.

You can find lasers for the XBox 360 all over the internet. Installing them isn't easy though.
